The “Bean”

The Cloud Gate Sculpture, also known as the “bean,” is one of the highlights of Millennium Park. The Bean sculpture, designed by Anish Kapoor, is made of 168 highly polished stainless steel plates – giving the appearance of liquid mercury. The bean stands in contrast to the skyscrapers of Chicago.
